Our speakers:
Scott Dueweke was appointed by President Reagan to the U.S. Agency for International Development at the U.S. Department of State.  He helped pioneer the field of ecommerce, specifically secure payments, presenting at the first Internet World Conference in 1994 on the topic.  Mr. Dueweke then led marketing for IBM’s Internet Payments group, and went on to develop P2P and non-traditional payment systems.  During this period he also created and led a humanitarian non-profit group called Freedom Flight International (FFI).  The organization flew small aircraft over the Florida Straits working with the U.S. Coast Guard to rescue Cuban rafters.  He now leads Virtual Identity efforts at Booz Allen Hamilton.  This role builds upon his decades of experience in the financial services industry, the Internet, and government, to examine identity holistically.  Virtual identity includes anonymity, pseudonymity, and the projection of identity in virtual worlds, online games, and social networking sites, as well as anonymous payment systems.

Catherine "Alden" Pelker is an intelligence analyst for the FBI, specializing in virtual currency and electronic payment processors.  She is currently assigned to the FBI's Cyber Intelligence Section through the FBI's Financial Crimes Section.  Prior to this assignment, Alden worked with the Asset Forfeiture/Money Laundering Unit on international money laundering investigations, identifying emerging tools, techniques, and methods used to evade law enforcement and formulating strategy to mitigate these threats.  Alden has served as the FBI liaison to the Global Illicit Financial Team and is spearheading an FBI Virtual Currency/Emerging Trends working group.  She graduated from Yale University with a degree in political science.
